This Year's Best Stocking Stuffer: Stocks

If you have some extra cash right now, there’s a big sale going on right now you should know about. It’s called the stock market.

When a place like Macy’s has a shoe sale, you want to be a buyer… This current market situation is like that Macy’s shoe sale: It’s the stock-sale of a generation. So keep doing your dividend reinvestment programs, keep on dollar-cost-averaging, and keep investing in increments. Two to three years from now, you’ll be glad that you did, or wished you had.
